July 2, 2018 - Five Independence Day Fireworks Shows and Benefits of Wheatgrass
Well, with school out, I am waaay confused about which day of the week it is. Everyday is feeling like Saturday or Sunday.
This year, the girls opted not to do horseback riding all summer. It was very stressful having to drive an hour each way and I think that they are both getting older, their interests are more about doing things local with their friends and day trips.
Not to mention, not having a "wake up" schedule for the majority of the week is quite invigorating for them. So, I'm just allowing the one-day-at-a-time approach this summer.
It's sad about the riding, but, perhaps they will do get back to it in the fall.
Of course, Gianna has a great deal of required reading to do this summer before starting high school as does Kelsey and they are loving going to Lifetime Fitness, to work out, take classes and enjoy the pool!
Three days left till our little overnight excursion to the Hudson Valley Hot Air Balloon Festival.
Overnight trips really have no stress especially from the perspective of packing and long-term planning.
Here's a refresher on why from an earlier blog post in April 2018:
6 Benefits to Day & Overnight Trips
Easy peasy packing - one outfit, one pair pj's, and toiletries. I'll throw in a pair of jeans "just in case."
Of course, we're taking the car, so we'll bring some snacks and water too. I promised the girls, we would rotate music preferences throughout the ride. 30 minute rotations - Mine, Gianna's and Kelsey.
I usually enjoy old school dance music - brings me back to my youth lol. Gianna prefers rap and Kelsey loves Broadway musical soundtracks. Some very diverse tastes! So, now, I'm sure you understand why it's necessary to rotate on a 2-hour drive!
Did you catch Tanya's blog today about the Health Benefits of Sugarcane Juice? Wow - very interesting and I never even knew it existed!!!
So, I did a quick search for Sugarcane Juice near me and pretty slim pickins. I found two places in Astoria, Queens, near Aunt Ro. We'll give it a shot (no pun intended) next time we visit.
The Teapsy New York and Natural Frontier Market
Ok - on my list!!! Thanks Tanya!!
I'm off to the supermarket now - boy do we go through lettuce and water quickly! And the rest of my day will be filled with writing and hitting the gym!
It's the Tuesday before July 4th and while it is a holiday week, somehow I didn't get the message while planning my uber busy week. No relaxing here!
In between my errands and running around yesterday, I had stopped back at home and to my surprise our friendly neighborhood Great Egret.
It was a busy day and it will be another busy day.
The kids had a dress rehearsal last night in preparation of the WCOPA (which starts on Friday).
We stopped at our usual Monday night go to - Thein Dang and in addition to what we ate, I ordered sugar cane juice.
Not only is it a very tasty drink, but do check out some of the benefits:

Okay guys, guess what time it is? Time for me to keep it short and sweet (get it - sweet = sugarcane juice. LOL) and for me to start working on my list of to dos.
Who knows, maybe I'll actually wrap up my day before midnight tonight...
Catch ya'll later,
